A juvenile male who sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg was uncooperative with police.

At approximately 12:50 a.m. Sunday, an officer was working another call when he heard several shots in the area north of St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center. After airing this information, the communications center received several calls of shots fired in the 300 block of Jackson Street.

Officers responded to that area and weren't initially able to locate anything amiss.

The communications center was then notified of a gunshot victim at St. Mary-Corwin. A juvenile male with a gunshot wound to the leg was brought into the emergency room by his brother.

"The injuries were not life-threatening and it was a through and through wound," said a police department spokesman. "The victim was very intoxicated and would not state who shot him."

Officers located the scene of the shooting: a residence in the 300 block of Jackson Street that had been the scene of a party.

"Several people were there when fights began to break out in the yard and unknown parties began shooting," the department spokesman said. "No one knew who was shooting and there was no serious bodily injury nor suspect information."

Two chainsaws, two pole sales, two leaf rakes and a weed trimmer, with a combined value in excess of $1,900, were reported stolen from Mountview Cemetery, in the 1300 block of Beulah Ave., on Friday.

Three arrested following

'suspicious vehicle' tip

A tip from an observant citizen led to three arrests Thursday night, the recovery of a stolen vehicle and confiscation of a small amount of heroin.

Deputies responded to a home in the 700 block of South Marcus Drive in Pueblo West after a citizen reported that a 2013 black Dodge Durango arrived at the residence, with several people exiting and running into the home.

At the residence, deputies saw the Durango parked behind the home but did not contact the residents as it was parked on private property. But the license plates did not belong to the Durango.

The deputy was then contacted by a woman, who told him the Durango, which belonged to her, had been reported stolen in January. The deputy obtained a warrant and detectives received permission from the owner to search the vehicle. Inside, there was a small amount of heroin, a stolen laptop computer and assorted tools typically used in committing burglaries.

Based on that discovery, detectives sought and executed a search warrant on the home, where they found suspected heroin in syringes, assorted drug paraphernalia and stolen checks. Two women in the home, Michelle Mass, 27, and Dusti Stephens, 35, voluntarily came out of the residence and were questioned by deputies.

Both had warrants and were arrested, with Mass picking up an extra charge for criminal impersonation.

In executing the search warrant, detectives discovered Jauan Perez, 26, sleeping in the home. Perez, identified as the individual who was driving the stolen Durango, was arrested for aggravated motor vehicle theft.

Police chase stolen vehicle

Although a stolen vehicle was recovered, the driver is on the lam.

At 3:33 a.m. Saturday, Officers Victor and Griffiths were in the area of Maudslay and LaCrosse avenues when Victor saw a car stopped at the curb, with its license plate appearing to be tied to the bumper with string. When he ran the plate, it listed to a different vehicle.

When the officers approached the vehicle, the driver suddenly sped away, almost running over Griffiths’ foot. The car went east on 19th Street and when the officers caught up to it, it was abandoned in the middle of the street. Additional officers searched the area but didn’t find the driver.

The recovery of the stolen vehicle followed the recovery of another one, on East 14th Street, earlier in the shift.

Multi-car accident blamed

on alcohol, distraction

Late Saturday, officers responded to a report of a multi-vehicle accident on Bonforte Boulevard.

The driver, Katherine E. Mohan, 24, told police she received a text and "looked down for just a second:" long enough for her vehicle to hit a parked pickup truck knocking it into a vehicle parked in front of it. The vehicles sustained notable damage but  Mohan escaped injury. She was, however, taken into custody on suspicion of DUI and DUI per se, with an additional count of careless driving.

Fraud

A Pueblo West resident sent $1,600 in Ebay gift cards to a "David" for purchase of a white 2000 Dodge RV van but got zilch in return.
